Q. Does anyone know how to safely clean the dust off of the Wii's internal cooling fan?(I just don't want the dust to collect inside and eventually cause my Wii to short curcuit or something like that.)

canned air. it's good for blasting dust off'a all kinds of small fans.

I thought of that, but I started wondering if it could possibly damage any electrical components inside.

not unless you're jabbing the nozzle up into the Wii and shoving it into bits and pieces of stuff, no... it's just a quick blast of air. o_O

Console preservation tips:BUY NINTENDO! My Wii has been waterlogged, my friends GBA was left in the woods for A YEAR! I read in Nintendo Power that a GBC got ran over with a lawn mower and rained on. A GB got blow'd up in a war! I dropped my GBA in Wal-Mart the day after I got it. I got my SNES used in like '94. My 64 new in like '99. All of these things still work. I don't pamper my stuff either.
Lots of censorship here...

It's great for fixing DS shoulder buttons, too.

We were moving and the box it was in got mistakenly left outside. And God decided that was the perfect time to make it rain in da club.

Well @GuardianAcorn I don't think you can fix that with the canned air. And I don't know if I would plug it in and play it after that happened.

Is it safe to leave a Wii disk in your Wii while your not playing it?

I have done this for years, so I hope it's safe.

@Oddy I was just asking, because I recently had a brand new Wii disk freeze up on me a couple of times and I've just been leaving it in my Wii.

Is it safe, to pour soda all over your Wii then set it on fire while beating with a sledge hammer? Because... I think it happened to me D:
Has anyone else had this problem before?

Wow, that sounds like the characters from Punch-Out! and Brawl Bros. were transported from your T.V. screen into your living room. Nope, I can't say that's happened to me before. lol (<:

I've been finding these strange marks on the data side of my Xenoblade Chronicles game disc, everytime I take it out of my Wii. They're not scratches, and they appear like some type of film or residue. I know they are only surface blemishes, because they aren't visible while holding the disc at an angle. It's slightly strange, because they're perfectly straight lines. All three of these lines go across the disc at the same type of angle, and cross through each other creating triangular patterns. Does anybody have any clue as to what might be causing these lines appear, or has anybody had something similar occur to their game discs before? I'm thinking my Wii might just be dirty inside. For some strange reason, this has only been happening to my Xenoblade Chronicles game disc. The game still plays perfectly fine, so I'm not currently that worried about it. I don't happen to have a game disc cleaning kit at my immediate disposal, so I'm unable to see if these marks can be easily removed. Do you think the Wii console laser cleaning kit would stop this from occurring anymore?

Ah um.. Great topic. Seems more like how to get your Wii obliterated.
